This is by far the best sounding SBD for 1976 Feat. By the time they play Fat Man, it's obvious this is gonna be a great show. The addition of One Love Stand is nice to have, a bit rare. R & R Doctor features some great hot slide from Mr. George. Oh Atlanta is easily as good as the version on WFC. Wow, they burn the city down again.
Damn, this show is blowing me away. Didn't have any 1976 Feat, thrilled this is available. Interesting, the 1973 shows are good, but by the time it's 1976, the band is a lot more polished, and they can also take more chances with the jams.
Plus, due to Paine, they've started to develop more of a jazz fusion sound by this point.

Nice double guitar work on Way Down. (You know, the Grateful Dead could have easily covered this song, kinda like LA Fadeaway.) Dream shows the direction the band was headed towards, with an almost Weather Report funky jazz feel. Great keyboard work from Bill here. Day Or Night maintains a smooth shuffle groove, great Santana-like percussion. Intense jamming near the end. The guitars take you to the stratosphere. Then it's time to come back down to the planet with that sexy old Dixie Chicken. Per usual, Bill puts on a virtuoso demonstration, and the whole jam afterwords is mind boggling wah-wah space funk. Is that a genre? Things get faster - which is the signal to slide ever so smoothly into Tripe Face !! Listen to that guitar tone! Peel the paint off yer walls. Again, the solo work in the middle by Bill is jaw dropping. Keith Jarrett one minute, then Fats Waller the next. He even plays some Charles Ives (look it up). Jeesuz, Mary and Joe!! Then the band all kick back in like a bolt of lightning. I'm Triped !!

As Kurt Vonnegut used to say -
"And so on."

The rest of the show is on the same tier, or higher. This is 3 CD's of some of the best rock and roll you'll ever hear in your life, truth.
A must have for all Feat fans.

The Dr. prescribes -
Pick out your favorite Grateful Dead 1976 show, and play this first as your warm up show.
It will take you days to recover, most likely.
10 Stars !!!
cheers,
Dr. Flashback :-)

My second time seeing Lowell and the boys. Too funky for a junkie and some tamales with the gumbo, please. Seriously though these guys were at their peak as a band. I remember walking away thinking Bill Payne was the second coming of Jerry Lee. The man could play any style and took the music to great heights.

Any body have the Charlie Daniels opener? That was pretty hot too!

Great hearing these shows. I was at the late show, making the trip in from UMass/Amherst. Had a great time! My only time seeing Feat with Lowell George and it is a fond memory of my college years.

Thank you so very damn much for sharing. I surely do believe I was actually lucky to be at the great late show.

{A guy on IA said that "chicks give it up for the Feat." I'm lookin' for the guy supplyin' the chicks that give up their feet.}

SQ - early B+ (bit distant, but better as she goes)
late A- (lil brighter, but w/bit of echo)

Note: (early) Dixie - cuts just before 10 min mark - as winding up on mighty hot damn jam - suddenly brings us back to do, dixie, the chorus

Random file listens: (early) Dixie - ripping epic classic trip (w/fun banter between Bill & Paul, too)
Tripe - more pianner/geetar mad fun!

(late) One Love Stand - deep dark sweet lark
RNR DR - if ya want it, ya need it
Oh Atlanta - oh mercy!
On Your Way Down - wow now what g-d Louisianer soul
All that you Dream - "There's a gleam, men. Let's go get the gleam!"
Day or Night - long flight down
Dixie > Tripe more awesome amazement for your amusement
